look up any word, like smh:
A usually derogatory phrase from Northern Ireland. Also spelt ‘hoker’. A hoaker is someone who roots around in a place where they shouldn’t be rummaging, e.g. under someone’s bed, in someone’s bag or bins etc.
“Hoakin’ the bins are ye? Ye durtay hanillin ye”.

“What are you hoakin’ for the day?’

“Go and have a hoak for it, hoaker”.
